To the Ladies of Meade county and vicinity: I have just returned from St. Joseph, where I attended the opening of one of the largest millinery houses in the west. Miss Jennie Veach, representative of . this company, just returned from Europe in time for the opening, where she had been since December, visiting the gay fashion centers of Paris, Berlin and London. In her talk to the milliners she said the hats are more practical and wearable this season, for never in the history of the trade had there been such an assortment of straw braids shown as would greet the milliners this season. The tendency is toward lightness. The hats themselves are large, that if the material were weighty the final construction would be over powering. The medium size is the leader at present, though, of course hats will grow larger as summer advances. Foliage is vgoing to be very much used. There are also numerous quills, wings, and orna ments, and flowers profuse. Ex treme novelties are in white, gray, and tan shades. Black is much used. The shades we have not used much lately are in, bright blue, call ed Watteau, and a shade between pink and old rose. Jets are not to be forgotten, they are very good. Black is not used much in Paris, for Paris is gay in everything, even to colors, while in Berlin it was noticed ' more, and in London to a greater extent, owing to the British losses in South Africa. Miss Jennie said that many of the best bouses in London feel that they will need nothing but black. There is a great tendency to plain colors this season. The ornrments are very showy. My patterns will be open for in spection as soon as the season ad vances sufficientiy. At present -1 have a nice line of 'ready to wear" models on exhibition. You know how indispensable these hats have become. It came first as the band ed sailor &nd plain walking hat, now it assumes limitless shapes and supplies every need in ' millinery for street and outing wear. Come and see them. Mrs. R. M. Judd.
